illy Dark Roast has a full body and the deep, rich flavor of a more intense espresso. Notes of cocoa and hints of caramel intertwine to create a coffee you will savor.

In addition, illy has made Dark Roast available in a variety of types to facilitate the brewing process:

  • Whole Bean - It's the perfect choice for coffee connoisseurs who prefer grinding the beans to suit their own individual taste and preparation method.
  • Fine Espresso Grind - Choose it if you enjoy personalizing the dosage of each espresso shot and the tactile pleasure of tamping the coffee.
  • Espresso Pods - Place a pre-measured illy pod into an E.S.E.-compatible espresso machine, and in less than 30 seconds you have rich, robust espresso!

illy Dark Roast comes either in a pressurized can to preserve the fresh flavor and aroma of the distinctive illy blend or an 18 count package of individually wrapped espresso pods.

  • 8.8 ounce can or 4.4 ounce box of premium illy coffee
  • Imported from Italy

Teri KStaff: illy generally describes their beans as espresso just when referring to their ground beans, so I am not sure about a version that is specifically "Espresso Whole Bean." Beans are usually blended together for different applications, but we don't have illy beans that are blended differently for espresso or other methods. We sell this illy Dark Roast Bean as a Whole Bean (in the can with the black top) or a ground for espresso applications (in the can with the black band at the base). I have included a link to the espresso ground coffee below:

Hope this clarifies!

A shopper asked: Can this particular roast of coffee be used in a super automatic (a Saeco Syntia)? Are the beans too oily? Sep 17, 2013

Teri KStaff: This bean is a bit too oily for the superautomatic machines and therefore I would recommend using the illy Medium Roast. Sep 18, 2013

Enjoying a dark roast and stronger coffee, we have searched and compared most everything out there.
The ILLY consistency is second to none and provides a robust cup.
The best thing you will notice about these beans is that although a dark roast, there is no oil on the beans. We have had to air dry every other dark roast on a plate for days - in which case only some of the oils have evaporated. As we own a Gaggenau machine that grinds each cup fresh, oily beans mean frequent cleanings and the potential for gumming up the mechanisms.
Illy eliminates this issue and provides a perfect cup every time.
